A woman is locked in her home with an egg, which she is both attracted to and scared of. She eats the egg, she repents. She kills it. She lets the egg die of hunger. Egg is a poetic short film based on a small yet significant moment of director’s own life. It portraits a moment of shame, defeat and yet of victory.
